Jam – 2010-05-25 – Carroll’s

This was a week that we jammed in the big studio with the Live-Five setup including Alan on rhythm, me on lead, Rich, Kevin, who is still using the Roland dual amp set up and Scott on drums.  Kevin has new round-wound strings on his bass, may be they were flat-wound, I forget, but they were new strings.   We did the Here Comes Sunshine into Bertha to start the evening and I thought Kevin with his new string was right there and on his game.  That only lasted so long.  Eventually during the big Estimated ->Eyes combo I notice Kevin slipping into oblivion and decided to end the Eyes of the World with a straight forward rocking Not Fade Away à Going Down the Road.  It may have worked a little but playing after that whole combo seemed a bit more laborious despite the Jolt gum Kevin was chewing.  The other big combo we did was the Help Slip Franklins which had its moments both up and down.

With it being Bob Dylan’s birthday, we attempted to end the evening with a Like a Rolling Stone which was not very good.  We also did a Good Morning Little School Girl in the 1st set where Rich instructed us to jam in A during the middle of the song jam.  After the song was over Rich was quite dismayed as he heard Kevin playing the song structure in his head in opposition to his previous instructions.  To be honest with you I don’t think I heard Kevin playing the 4 or the 5 to the A jam so I guess we will have to wait for the recordings to hear what really went on.

We also did a bit of a Beatle segment in the middle of the night which was highlighted by the Savoy Truffle.  The Here There Everywhere wasn’t too good.  Finally, there was only the lone Scott Bayer as our guest for the night who was pounding the skins on the bongos during a song or two.  Until we freak out again next week, Freak Out and enjoy the holiday week-end.
